OU Soccer Field
With capacity to accomodate 1,000 fans, the OU Soccer Field has served as the home field for the Oakland men's and women's soccer programs since 2001. The 120 x 75-yard field is seeded with Kentucky bluegrass and rye. In 2011 the facility was upgraded with lighting to allow for night matches, as well as a gated concourse on the upper level.
With a first-rate facility, it's no surprise to learn that the OU Soccer Field has hosted 10 Summit League Soccer Championships, the most of any facility in the Summit League. The Field has hosted The Summit League men's soccer Championship six times and the women's championship four times. In 2010 the Oakland men's team won The Summit League title in front of the home fans. The next season the women's team followed suit as hosts, becoming the first-ever No. 4 seed to win the league title.
The OU Soccer Field was also the host site for Oakland's opening match in the 2008 NCAA Men's Soccer Tournament. The field has also been used as a training ground for various professional clubs, including AC Milan and Panathanaikos during a 2010 visit.
Both the men's and women's soccer team have a winning record at the field, with men's soccer boasting a .658 (53-26-13) winning percentage on its home field, while the women's team has won .611 (54-33-7) percent of home matches since the field opened.
